Live in the Philippines or Taiwan? Holding out for a BlackBerry Torch smartphone? If so, great news. RIM has launched the BlackBerry Torch in both the Philippines and Taiwan. Lately, there has been little talk about Taiwan. For example, the Philippines was blessed with the BlackBerry Curve 3G before. Now, however, Asia sure enjoys the love, as the BlackBerry Torch is becoming available literally everywhere
To make the BlackBerry 6 experience more complete for Chinese customers, the BlackBerry Torch employs Chinese handwriting support. Without contract, the BlackBerry Torch will set you back a smooth 19,900 TWD (a bit over 650 USD) from Taiwan Mobile. Contract pricing starts at 968 TWD (~32 USD) a month. In the Philippines, the BlackBerry Torch will be available later this month - make sure to keep your eyes wide open for announcements form local service providers. So, anyone up for acquiring a BlackBerry Torch anytime soon? Be sure to check out the press releases for the Philippines and Taiwan for any details!
